Campers must have all prescription and over-the-counter medications in a plastic sealable bag with the camper’s full name written on the outside. Only inhalers and epi-pens are exempt from this requirement. Prescription medications must be in their original container with the camper’s name and directions on the container. All medications will be collected and stored by staff for the duration of the camp. The Wren’s Nest does not have any licensed medical professionals on staff to prescribe or administer medications. Students must be knowledgeable of their medications and how to administer them. Program staff will give campers their medicine bags at the time designated on the medical form provided by parents/ guardians during registration. Program staff will not handle students’ medications directly nor provide guidance on how or what medications to take. If the student is unsure of the medication to take or the correct dosage, the student will need to contact their parent for clarification. I understand that in the event of an emergency, my child will be transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston or another medical facility if deemed appropriate by Program staff. In the event of an emergency involving my child and if the staff members cannot get in touch with me, I hereby authorize any needed medical care. I further agree to be fully responsible for all medical expenses incurred during the treatment of my child. I understand that my child is not allowed to keep medication on their persons, in their lunch box or backpack. Any medications must be turned in to the Program staff in labeled containers, with a signed authorization to dispense form, and will be stored in the office until needed. Medical Information/Authorization Form will be provided via email and on the first day of camp.

Please list all allergies/restrictions (food, drugs, insects, sunscreen, insect repellent, etc.). If none, enter "None" or "N/A."

Please share any needs or restrictions—including how participation in activities should be adjusted, if applicable. If none, enter "None" or "N/A."

My listed emergency contact is authorized to drop off and pick up my camper.
For the safety of our students, The Wren’s Nest will only release a camper to someone if either one of the following conditions is met: • The person picking up the camper is listed on the release list and can provide proof of identification. • The parent or guardian has provided the Program staff with a letter/note explaining the situation and the name of the person to whom we should release the camper. All families must bring proper identification to drop off and pick up their camper(s).
To ensure an enjoyable experience for all our campers, we reserve the right to dismiss a student from the program due to dangerous or disruptive behavior, which includes but is not limited to verbal or physical aggression, verbal or physical harassment, failure to follow safety or program instructions, and other behavior that detracts from the program’s goals and mission. A camper’s dismissal from the program is at the discretion of the Scribes Summer Camp instructor or Program staff.
• Please make sure you pack your camper’s lunch each day. We recommend packing lunch in thermal bags; campers will not have access to a microwave or refrigerator. • Snacks will not contain nuts and aim to avoid common allergens. • If your camper has severe food allergies or dietary restrictions, we highly encourage you to pack them a snack in addition to their lunch. • Snacks and lunches containing nuts are not permitted.
Campers are allowed to have cell phones during the summer camp but are discouraged from using them during the hours of instruction, snack, and lunch times. We ask that all campers leave electronic devices, including cell phones, in their bags until their dismissal. The Wren’s Nest is not responsible for any items that are lost, broken, or stolen.
